"BD" means hybrid with Balanced Armature and Dynamic(moving coil) drivers and the number represent how many of them which the model is using!
So...BD 4.2 (Pronunciation－BD 4 point 2) means 4 Balanced Armature and 2 Dynamic drivers in one side of the earphone!

IN CONLUSION: LEAR BD4.2 is unlike anything I've ever measured so far. Yes, the claims made by the manufacturer turn out to be all true, and the accumulated effects from the innovations add up to the benefit of users.
The stock configuration presented by LEAR is superb too, but the fact that the sound signature can be finely adjusted without having to modify the IEM's internal components shall be praised & glorified the most. There are simply endless possibilities for users to discover by means of both simple acoustical & electrical tweaks. And because of that, I acknowledge BD4.2 as one of the IEMs with highest quality of all, and one of my most favorite headphones as well.
Pros: Great build, nice set of accessories, fun sound with own signature, tunable bass
Cons: Price, need to find a prefect fit, so better order them in custom body
